Most of our Boston Terrier puppies are sold with limited AKC papers unless otherwise agreed upon at the time of sale. This only means they will not be used in any breeding practices and will be spayed or neutered at the proper age. I reserve the right to make this decision at the time of sale. My prices differ from show or pet , depending on the quality of each puppy. They are not cheap by any means, but they are worth every penny! There will be a Florida sales Tax of 7% added on the purchase price when you pick up your baby.
Bostons are designed to live inside the home as beloved family members for life. We do not want our puppies or dogs to end up in an over crowded kennel, mass producing puppies waiting for the Humane Soc. to come rescue them. All puppies are like children, a gift from God and are not disposable! In other words, "I will not sell to Puppy Mills or Pet Stores".
I feed an all natural Raw meat diet of Ground Beef, starting at 3 weeks old. Then I introduce them to ground Chicken and bone along with different kinds of raw meat including fish. As they mature, they can eat Raw chicken pieces. I prefer to give them Chicken necks, legs, thighs, and breast pieces, this will help keep their teeth healthy and sparkling white. My dogs & puppies LOVE NuVet Vitamins, fruits & veggies like strawberries, blueberries sweet potatoes, green beans and their favorite is PEANUT BUTTER on bread as a treat or snack.
If you decide you are ready to make a commitment to one of my babies forever contact me. Please tell me something about you and your family and what your plans are for a Boston. You are welcome to bring your family and come meet all of us. No puppy will be sold without a written Health Certificate done by one of my treasured Vets.
Thank you so much, and may God bless you and yours!

Things you should know about A Boston Terrier
Boston Terrier History
Originally bred to be fighters and scrappers, over the years they evolved into pleasant companions, which prove to be in spades. Though the typical spunk and attitude shows up now and then, they are generally easy going and amiable. Their keen intellect also makes them easy to train and eager to learn.
Boston Terriers get along with the whole family and other household pets (especially like-minded Boston Terriers). This is a playful breed that likes to be involved in family occasions. They get along famously with children, but have been known to be testy with the very young. Protective at just the right times, Boston Terriers will bark and bark and bark if someone approaches the house in a suspicious way.
Prone to heatstroke, Boston Terriers should be monitored when playing outdoors on hot days. And their short snouts may cause them to snore, drool and snort kind of like Pugs. They are very easy to groom and don't shed too much.
Boston Terriers can be very happy in apartments. A good daily walk and regular activity in the park will be enough to keep them mentally and physically in shape.
A healthy Boston Terrier can live as long as 16 years. Common health problems include cataracts, heart problems and allergies.
Originating in Boston, the Boston Terrier is one of the few breeds native to the United States. Bred in the 1870s from a mixture of English Terriers and English Bulldogs, Boston Terriers were originally known as Round Heads or Bull Terriers. In 1889, several dozen owners of these dogs formed the American Bull Terrier Club, which eventually angered fanciers of the proper Bull Terrier breed. With a name change in place, the Boston Terrier Club of America was formed in 1891, and two years later the AKC registered the breed.
Boston Terriers have short, compact, muscular frames with well-balanced and graceful postures. Their short, wide and flat heads sized in proportion to their bodies have square, wrinkle-free muzzles, widely set eyes and big black noses. They have slightly arched necks and broad chests, strong limbs and short tails. Their smooth, fine coats come in brindle and white, seal and white, or black and white.
